“Asure Software’s Smart Office Platform is the first to integrate workspace and workforce technologies to enable modern companies to embrace the new normal of when, where, and how people work.”

In 1998, McKinsey & Company warned businesses around the globe about the War on Talent. During this time, the talent management market proliferated with tools designed to automate and manage HR tasks. In the early 2000s, the market started to shift from automation to integration to streamline enterprise-wide processes. Companies today want to simplify and improve the employee experience, and to do so, they need software that is much more focused on employee needs. In recent years, to make life better for employees, many companies have started to turn their attention to the space in which the lives of their employees unfold.

In the coming decades, the global workforce will be cut nearly in half, and those who are available and qualified to work will be dispersed across the globe. The new currency of the labor market will be mobility, not stability, and businesses will have to match the flexibility and agility that members of this modern diverse mobile workforce have come to expect from every other direction of their lives. By 2020, the talent pool will look significantly different as baby boomers retire, and millennials with different values, expectations, and ways of working will comprise 50 percent of the workforce.

This new generation is not bound to one location, and it is always connected, used to fast response times, comfortable with different learning and work modalities, and understands how to exercise its options. In fact, according to IDC, mobile workers will account for nearly three quarters (72.3 percent) of the total U.S. workforce.

According to Deloitte, To offer agility over stability, businesses must “operate as empowered networks, coordinated through culture, information systems, and talent mobility. Global Workforce arrangements need to be adapted in order to discuss the diverse employee landscape and build abilities required for the future of work.” Asure Software, Inc., headquartered in Austin, Texas, provides intuitive and innovative solutions incorporated to help organizations of all sizes and complexities build firms of the future.
